Abstract

This paper describes new measurements from CLEO of the inclusive B→Ds +X branching fraction as well as the B+→Ds (*)+(*)0 and β0→Ds (*)+D(*)- branching fractions. The inclusive branching fraction is B(B→Ds +X) = (12.11±0.39±0.88±1.38)% where the first error is statistical, the second is the systematic error, and the third is the error due to the uncertainty in the Ds +→φπ+ branching fraction. The branching fractions for the B→Ds (*)+(*) modes are found to be between 0.9% and 2.4% and are significantly more precise than previous measurements. The sum of the B→Ds (*)+(*) branching fractions is consistent with the results of fits to the inclusive Ds + momentum spectrum. Factorization is used to arrive at a value for fDs, the Ds + decay constant.

N2 - This paper describes new measurements from CLEO of the inclusive B→Ds +X branching fraction as well as the B+→Ds (*)+D̄ (*)0 and β0→Ds (*)+D(*)- branching fractions. The inclusive branching fraction is B(B→Ds +X) = (12.11±0.39±0.88±1.38)% where the first error is statistical, the second is the systematic error, and the third is the error due to the uncertainty in the Ds +→φπ+ branching fraction. The branching fractions for the B→Ds (*)+D̄(*) modes are found to be between 0.9% and 2.4% and are significantly more precise than previous measurements. The sum of the B→Ds (*)+D̄(*) branching fractions is consistent with the results of fits to the inclusive Ds + momentum spectrum. Factorization is used to arrive at a value for fDs, the Ds + decay constant.
